Runaway Wallflower (Matchmaking for Wallflowers Book 3)

by Bianca Blythe

Ever since Louisa Carmichael’s brother unexpectedly inherited a dukedom, her mother’s expectations for her have veered in a distinctly vertical direction. Louisa dreams not of glittering ballgowns, but of exploring the tropical waters of the Caribbean with her latest invention, an underwater breathing apparatus.
Lord Rupert Haywood, future Duke of Belmonte, has no desire to manage an estate with his corrupt father. He prefers to roam the ocean with his crew of rugged pirates.

When her mother arranges a marriage for her, Louisa decides she might just don a pair of breeches and discover the Caribbean in disguise. The only problem is a certain very handsome captain…



Horologio: Novela Histórica â?? Finalista Premio â??Alféizar de Novela 2017â? (Spanish Edition)

by José Luis Guil Guerrero

SINOPSIS: 

Cercado por los cristianos en Granada, ya sin esperanza de victoria en una larga guerra y a la espera de la partida hacia el exilio en las Alpujarras, Boabdil decide celebrar una velada de ocio en la Alhambra para entretener a la nobleza palaciega. Acosado por la melancolía, dispone la lectura de los poemas de las Horas, obra escrita algo más de un siglo atrás por el místico sufí Ibn al Jatîb para uno de sus antepasados, el sultán Mohammed V.

Los versos se hallan escritos en rollos que paulatinamente surgirán de un horologio, un ingenio diseñado para medir el tiempo nocturno, cuyo mecanismo es accionado por el fuego de una vela que controla la apertura de sus doce puertas. La noche pivota pues en torno a un eje que marca tanto las rampas del tiempo como el ánimo del sultán. Puntuales e implacables, los poemas declamados por el recitador abren ocultas ventanas en la conciencia del nazarí, haciéndole reflexionar sobre el significado de su vida y llevándolo a situaciones en las que se enfrenta a los elementos que la han distorsionado.

A Free State

by Thomas Staaden

In the year 1860, the fragile American Republic was on the abyss of civil war. Such a horrible war was only avoided by the creation of The Jefferson Republic, a new nation for the newly freed slaves. This arrangement helped many of the slaves achieve freedom without a bloody war. Yet, others were affected more than others.
Towards one end of the spectrum is James, a recently freed slave, and on the other end is Stephan, James former master, whose life changes almost as much as James as a result.
Yet, when trouble shrouded in mystery threatens James new home, he calls upon his friend Stephan to help him save the freedom he now has. With their friendship, their fortunes, and their lives in a precarious balance, they must uncover the truth behind the mystery, before coming to a chilling discovery.
